SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE FARMING

1. BUY LOCAL

There are many ways that YOU can help support local sustainable farming practices. Of course, the most basic way is to buy as much of your food as possible from local farms practicing ecologically-friendly sustainable agriculture. This not only keeps small farms such as ours in business but also helps increase demand for healthy food and encourages the long-term viability of small, local producers while pushing for a higher standard in the food industry as a whole. Our present day agri-business model will never change until there is a shift in demand along with an informed public outcry against the industry as a whole. To learn more about farms in Floyd County please visit our links to local producers. If you do not live near Floyd County, VA, you can visit our links page and find producers close to you through websites such as eatwellguide.com, eatwild.com, and localharvest.com.

 

2. BECOME EDUCATED

Another way to support local sustainable agriculture is to educate yourself on contemporary issues about the food industry. There are a number of great websites and books on this subject. To find out more please visit our links page to view some of the books and websites that we have found particularly helpful.

 

3. TAKE ACTION

If you become convinced, as we have, that the standard factory-farm methodology is unhealthy and unethical, then please take time to advocate for legislation that supports local sustainable farming. Periodically we post links to petitions or websites that oppose legislation that destroys family farms. Like us on Facebook to stay updated on the latest news, including pertinent legislation.
